From the Distant Past, Tales of Cantors and Corpses
By JAKE MOONEY
N Jan. 22, 1856, a group of Jewish men from Brooklyn gathered at the Myrtle Avenue home of a
Mr. Ross to discuss their "earnest desire" to found a religious community. Known as the Kane
Street Synagogue, or Congregation Baith Israel Anshei Emes, the institution they founded is still
in operation in Cobble Hill.
The records from that first meeting and other early papers subsequently found their way into a five-foottall
safe. At some point the combination was lost, and the safe remained locked for decades.
Data of Reckoning
Quentin Hardy, 05.10.04
Business gets more information than ever. This is just the start. How to survive?
We, or rather the electronic devices we employ, are data pack rats, accumulating e-mails, Web pages, credit card swipes,
phone messages, stock trades, memos, address books and radiology scans. It's impossible to count all these bits, but
people make good guesses, and they have come up with one for 2002. During that year the world created 5 exabytes of
information. An exabyte is the digital equivalent of a trillion novels. The yearly total amounts to somewhat more than all the
words ever spoken by human beings--and it was up 68% from two years earlier.

And Workers Throw up Their Hands

Yes, Virginia, there is something worse than spam -- spyware.
Spam isn't fun -- it can clog up your inbox, make you miss important emails
and expose you to offensive content. But spyware can do far
worse. The most-common forms of spyware pop up Internet Explorer
windows filled with ad links. Sounds minor, but they can distract you
from your work and slow down or crash your machine. Meanwhile,
there are spyware programs that do more nefarious things -- such as
transmit details about your online travels or even log your keystrokes
(which could include credit-card numbers and other sensitive
information) for transmission elsewhere. And while spams can just be
deleted, spyware can be infuriatingly difficult to remove from your PC.
